Fabrics that are leftover from textile factories are called SURPLUS TEXTILES or dead stock. These are eventually recycled or thrown away. Giving SURPLUS fabrics a new purpose is a good way of giving value to what already exists, offering more without damaging the environment. Elementum uses fabric SURPLUSES from Portuguese factories only, and exclusively from natural fibres.
Technically, it’s cotton, but from another part of the cotton plant, giving the resulting fabric a significantly different feel than typical cotton. The fibre itself is derived from cotton linter, which is the very fine, soft material that sticks to the cottonseeds and is left behind after the cotton has been ginned. Usually, these fibres are discarded, however, they are now recycled for the production of this surprisingly beautiful textile.
